ROKII – SmartPony™ | Album | Electronic

ROKII recently released their SmartPony™ Album and I have to say its a real treat! Introduced with an eerie yet mystical ambiance that relays a sense of discovery and the unknown. From here things progressively ramp up and AI Heartbeat really caught my attention here. Its very mechanical yet melodic and everything feels like clockwork from here as elements are brought in and out breathing life to the machine and is a very solid track that blends the mysticism of the opening with the rest of the album’s inner workings.

After a short interlude we get into the dark and gritty of Internet Protocol Address. After the AI comes alive it than needs an identifier. That is where this track comes into play with some industrial minimalist vibes it really feels like a driving force for whats to come.

This album has quite a lot of diversity ranging from ambient, to progressive house, tech house, dubstep, complextro, and more and its just such a fun experience to explore the mind of the SmartPony™. I especially love its ending. The raw emotion it exudes is awe-inspiring and the world it shapes before we even get into the first few notes really sets us up to let us know that it is indeed getting dark, and their batteries have run out; at least for now…

Ataraxia – Anaphora | Electropop / Ambient Pop

Ataraxia brings a 7 minutes progressive and ethreal ambient electropop track with distint relations with some Linkin Park songs from Living Things or A Thousand Suns. The song about King Sombra is an absolutly banger. The deep theme behind the lyrics and the vocal performance of Ataraxia adds more awesomness to the electronic backlash of sounds, a mix of industrial with ambient with even some house elements? I don’t know, I would say that Ataraxia always has a Linkin Park feeling, idk if are the instrumentals or that if his vocals are quite similar to Chester. The powerfull synths at the “chorus” are also pretty deep and emotional.
Anaphora. Greek: ἀναφορά, “carrying back”. Is a rhetorical device that consists of repeating a sequence of words at the beginnings of neighboring clauses, thereby lending them emphasis.
It really reflects on some verses of this specific song! The ones with “I’ll be a path inside your mind”. Good job Ataraxia, you always suprise me!

[P@D] Michael Picher – Beyond the Fourth Wall | Orchestral / Soundtrack

Beyond the Fourth Wall is a masterpiece right from the start! From the hauntingly beautiful melodies to the foreboding atmospheres portrayed, Picher sets the tone perfectly for what could only be the perils and mysteries that of which realms beyond the Fourth Wall can bestow. There is a very cinematic and grand feel to the whole piece and keeps getting me thinking “There is something bigger out there. But what?”
This track is available as part of Ponies at Dawn Enigma.
